Still waiting

Last night I finally fell asleep for a few hours only to wake up to a minor blood bath. At about 3am I awoke to a blood soaked shirt and pillow. The line in my neck decided to spring a leak. Meg and I did our best to clog it up till morning where we then hustled over to the clinic for repair. They bandaged me up and the rest of the day has been a write off - for Meg to. I've been trying to sit up as much as possible with my head bobbing to the left, right, front and back....like a little kid in a car seat. So tired! I'm still waiting to hear from my doc if i'm going to start something soon. I'm back in tomorrow for blood transfusion and hopefully I will begin some cocktail of chemo and whatever drug they may or may not come up with. We've offered to pay for the drug which just might happen...it's all good just give it to me. Cancer doensn't feel good and there isn't much to do about that but get rid of it.


  1. man, my heart goes out to you... i continually use you as a example of you toughness...i got guys that think its a pain in the ass to get up , go to class and actually have to perform on the court...and if their girlfriend is "tripping" then that inturn intitles them to a bad day...

    you keep fighting like i know you will, and this will play out...you have a lot of peoples prayers right now, and with meg and the "chad army", hopefully these docs can get a solution for you....and we can get you back to normal....

    hang tough and i will be reading>>>>>

    love ya man>>>


  2. Chad, your blog is incredible and I will always see you as an inspiration. Please know that you and Megan are in my thoughts. LY

  3. hey buddy,
    we haven't been in touch for awhile, but that doesn't mean you aren't in my thoughts. whenever i start feeling sorry for myself (recently separated), i consider the trails and tribulations you have been through. like one of your other friends, i often use you as an example of someone who has the mental fortitude to overcome what appear to be insurmountable odds. i can only bet on you doing it again, and again, and again...
    get through this so we can play shitty golf or you can watch me hit some grounder forehands on the court.

  4. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?
